The 17th Annual Conference for Management Accounting Research (ACMAR) takes place at WHU in Vallendar, Germany. Every year at the beginning of March more than 140 international researchers and accounting scholars across various topics and methods participate and engage in a debate and dialogue about management accounting.

The conference offers the opportunity to present management accounting research in parallel sessions (with and without discussant) as well as development roundtables, and to find out what colleagues in the community are working on. ACMAR provides a friendly and sociable platform for meeting colleagues in management accounting research, instigating joint research projects, and generally keeping in touch.

In addition to the parallel sessions, our keynote speakers will present their insights into current trends in management accounting research and practice. Previous keynote speakers include Thomas Ahrens, Christopher Chapman, Wai Fong Chua, Matthew Hall, Frank Hartmann, Ranjani Krishnan, Kari Lukka, Teemu Malmi, Michal Matějka, Martin Messner, Sven Modell, Dieter Pfaff, Stefan Reichelstein, Karen Sedatole, Naomi Soderstrom, Wim A Van der Stede, Sally Widener, Marc Wouters, and Anne Wu, among others.

The 9th ACMAR Doctoral Colloquium will take place in conjunction with the conference from March 4 - 5, 2020. The Colloquium’s objective is to provide an opportunity for doctoral students from various countries to discuss their research and work in progress with an experienced faculty.

We look forward to welcoming you to Vallendar in March 2020!
